It’s been a busy few weeks. My husband has been traveling and studying as he looks for his next work venture and my in-laws seem to have more and more work obligations as well. Basically, the extra work makes for not much cooking and even less writing. But even with the busy schedules, my husband and I did make some time for the Raleigh Craft Beef Festival. It was rainy, but that didn’t stop us! As for me, I am counting down the days until summer and simultaneously wanting a few extra days with my students before they take their state tests (can we all just agree that state testing for school subjects is the worst. thing. ever.). This Pad Thai really hit the spot for our busy-week-day blues.
